Information about midwife-related complaints is confidential unless sent to a formal disciplinary hearing. Under the Health Professions Act(HPA), the Registrar:
- Must release certain information when a midwife’s practice permit is 1) revoked, 2) suspended, or 3) restricted with conditions.
- Must publish any decision made by a hearing tribunal, council or court of unprofessional conduct based in whole or in part on sexual abuse or sexual misconduct.
- Can publish or distribute information about any discipline hearing not held in private to ensure transparency and accountability to the public.
The CMA publishes a brief description of resolutions regarding complaints of unprofessional conduct by midwives. This may include a variety of formats as well as the sanctions ordered by a Hearing Tribunal. Publication is not intended to provide comprehensive information but rather to provide the opportunity for learning and understanding by both members and the public.
